The UK Government are currently consulting on a raft of environmental legislation aimed at the packaging sector. This includes DRS (deposit return scheme), EPR (extended producer responsibility), standardisation of collection, mandatory labelling and a plastics tax. The target date for implementation is currently 2023 and the combined effect of these changes on the packaging landscape will be profound with significant increases in costs in many cases, especially for packaging that cannot be recycled, or that has a low recycling rate. This presentation aims to provide an overview of the likely changes and the related cost implications related to pack selection.
